In offshore industry enhanced safety margins are required for welded joints, resulting in additional selection criteria for type of welding process and kind of filler material.

DRIVERS AND TRENDS
Support frames, deck structures and complex process and drilling modules are the essential parts of the offshore oil & gas production facilities. reduction in plate thickness, compared to s355, can be 50% for s690 and 60% for s890 grades.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
Reliability, due to nearly defect-free and high-toughness butt welds, determines a substantial part of the construction integrity. New covered electrodes, flux cored wires and wire/flux combinations have become available for the welding of (very) high strength steel components. They offer the required combination of strength and toughness in the as-welded and post-weld heat-treated condition, and very low weld metal hydrogen content.

An important challenge is the working range of a consumable, that still delivers required properties. Restrictions in operability, heat input, welding position, or joint configuration limit the application of a specific consumable and should be minimized.
